Elizabeth married Sir Adam GORDON 12th of that Ilk, 'Lord of Gordon', son of John GORDON 10th of that Ilk and Unknown.1 (Sir Adam GORDON 12th of that Ilk, 'Lord of Gordon' was born about 1357 and died on 14 September 1402 in Battle of Homildon Hill, Northumberland, England 1.)


  Marriage Notes:

"Sir Adam, according to Ferrerius, married the only daughter of the Laird of Somerville, but this seems to be a perversion of a fact to be stated later. There is better evidence that his wife was Elizabeth Keith, fourth daughter of Sir William Keith, Marischal of Scotland, by his wife, Margaret Fraser, only child and heiress of Sir John Fraser, and granddaughter of Sir Alexander Fraser, who held the
territory of Aboyne and other lands in the shires of Aberdeen, Kincardine, and Forfar. The marriage probably took place before or about 1380, as Elizabeth Keith's eldest sister, Muriel, married, in 1379, as his second wife, Robert,
Earl of Fife and Menteith.......
... Sir Adam Gordon and Elizabeth Keith had issue a son and daughter :
1. JOHN.
2. ELIZABETH, who succeeded her brother"

from Scots Peerage 1

Elizabeth next married Thomas DE SOMERVILLE of Linton and Carnwath, Lord Somerville, Justiciar of Scotland about 2 November 1411.1 3 (Thomas DE SOMERVILLE of Linton and Carnwath, Lord Somerville, Justiciar of Scotland was born about 1370,3 died in December 1444 3 and was buried in 1444 in Carnwath, Lanarkshire, Scotland 3.)


  Marriage Notes:

"Elizabeth Gordon ... married ... thirdly, Thomas Somerville, probably the Thomas Somerville who was Lord of Carnwath. She, under the designation of Elizabeth of Keith, Lady of the barony of Aboyne, with consent of Thomas Somerville, her husband, granted, on 20 October 1431, infeftment of certain lands in the barony of Aboyne to Sir Alexander Forbes. She had thus succeeded to her mother, Margaret Fraser, in some at least of her large estates, including Aboyne and Cluny. She died about 1436, as in 1437 these lands were in possession of her daughter, whose husband lifted the rents."
